Daehlie Glove Rush: first impressions 

Made by a Nordic ski apparel company, the form-fitting Daehlie Glove Rush is designed for high-output activities like running and Nordic skiing or backcountry skiing (see different types of skiing), when your body is producing so much heat that you don’t really need a lot of insulation to keep you warm. 

For periods of inactivity, when you can cool down dangerously quickly, the high grip power stretch glove has a windproof mitten cover to warm up cold fingers. And when you get going again, the cover tucks away into a back of hand pocket when you don’t need it.

When I’m holding a ski pole, I want ski gloves with a good, reliable grip, and these Daehlie Glove Rush provide it. The palm, fingers, the backside of the pointer finger and the back of the hand near the wrist all have a silicone gripper print that helped me hold securely onto my poles and kept my pole wrist straps from sliding around whenever I used these gloves with poles. 

I used the seam-taped, mitten-style finger covers when I was getting warmed up and was impressed how quick and easy they were was to tuck away when when I needed the gloves to be gloves again. They were also handy when I wore these gloves for running or fat biking (and if you’re not sure what fat biking is, see: what are winter sports?

The elasticized cuff was easy to get into and the wrist pull-tab was handy for getting these on. I didn’t need to take them off to send a text, check my location or record my training, because the thumb and forefinger both have touchscreen tips. The thumb also has a soft nose-wipe material.
